I think everyone can agree with me that 70 percent of the time watching a film on the big screen is a horrible experience. Between dirty theaters with ridiculously expensive prices – even on Matinees, sticky floors, poor projection quality (although, that hasn’t been as bad lately) and rude people who won’t turn off their phones and iPads there’s very little incentive for people to go. Now there’s one more incentive not to go Twitter and Vine are coming to a theater near you.
Have you ever watched a TV show and wondered why on earth did that character do that? Well, Syfy is giving fans of Warehouse 13 a chance to interact with the characters from its hit series Warehouse 13 (Mondays, 10/9C) as each new episode unreels. So now you can find out what the W13 team is really thinking, via Twitter, as they set out to snag, bag and tag all those dangerous Artifacts.
For details, follow the tag to the official press release – and then prepare to find out what Artie, Claudia, Myka, Pete and Steve are really thinking on those hazardous missions.
ABC is hoping fans of its Sunday night line-up – Once Upon a Time, Revenge and Red Widow – are a talking, or at least tweeting, mood. During the March 10th broadcast of those shows, fans will be to join in on conversations with fellow fans and talent from the shows on Twitter.
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? For details, follow the jump to the official press release for details.
If you are on Twitter, beginning today, you have the opportunity to catch the premiere of NBC’s Grimm [Fridays, 9/8C] – a full two weeks before its network debut. Also planned are a ten-city screening tour and 20-minute previews on a number of NBC-related websites.

Today’s an exciting day because we are about to witness the birth of an original series on Twitter. That’s right folks, today The P@ssionate and The Privileged Twitter series goes live! Ok, so today the WEBSITE goes live and the show premieres in two weeks on Tuesday March 8th at 3pm EST but still that’s very exciting and this highly anticipated show is one step closer to a reality! As far as I know, this is one of the first if not the first scripted drama on Twitter and I for one am excited to see what happens.
In typical soapy fashion there’s a love triangle…actually there are several love triangles, family secrets, murder, intrigue, sex, lies, money and of course passion…LOTS of passion! It wouldn’t be much of a soap without sexy love stories and The P@ssionate and The Privileged has something for everyone.
The shows website (http://www.pandptheshow.com) launches today but season one, episode one premiere’s Tuesday, March 8th at 3pm EST with Episode two taking place just a couple days later on Thursday, March 10 at 3pm EST. That’s right it’s on twice a week and each episode lasts one hour. Another little treat to keep your fix going during the rest of the week is character interaction. During the week when the show is not on, you as the viewer will have the chance to talk directly to the characters. That’s right I said characters, not cast so please keep that in mind. Also, the actors behind the characters will not be revealed right away so expect your favorites from daytime soaps, television, film and Broadway to make an appearance. You might even find a few friends from Twitter voicing a character, you just never know!
